I first met Doris and Vince when they moved into Oxford Towne, and they “followed” me to Acacia Village. We continued to stay in touch in Florida. My sincerest condolences to her/their families.

I am so very sorry to hear this. Mrs. Triola was my 5th grade teacher at Columbus School in Utica. She was always one of my favorite teachers—one that I still speak of to this day. She guided us through President Kennedy’s assassination and put up with all the screaming girls during the birth of Beatlemania. Not an easy thing to do, but she did it beautifully and with gentle love.
Rest in peace, Mrs. Triola, wherever you may be.

Please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of Mrs. Triola. She was my 5th grade teacher at Columbus School in Utica and made a profound impression on all her students. She instilled a love of reading and history and made learning fun. My older sister also had her for 5th grade when she was still Miss Helmer. We had a running argument - "Miss Helmer is the best" to which I would reply "no, Mrs. Triola is the best."
She was always one of my favorite teachers and I remember 5th grade with warmth because of her. Rest in peace, Mrs. Triola, and know that you were much loved by your students.
